The Course Evaluation (CEVAL) system allows students to evaluate both course content and teaching effectiveness. Comments and evaluation form part of the information used by the Tenure and Promotions Committee in evaluating faculty members' contributions in the area of teaching.
Course evaluations are completed by students and processed by Course Evaluation Coordinators (CECs). The CECs are staff appointed by the Departments. Instructors cannot be authorized as CECs and do not have access to individual results.
The CEVAL system is implemented on the University website and is accessed using an Internet browser. The system can accommodate both online questionnaires and paper forms. Typically, the course evaluation period is the last two weeks of the semester before final exams.
For students, the system provides email reminders to complete the questionnaire and allows the students to view their own responses. For CECs, the system provides tools for creating a course questionnaire and reporting its results.
